About This Item

New York : Alfred A. Knopf, 2000.. First Edition. Hard Cover. xi, 288 p., index, 25 cm. "No event in American history which was so improbable at the time has seemed so inevitable in retrospect as the American Revolution. On the inevitability side, it is true there were voices back then urging prospective patriots to regard American independence as an early version of manifest destiny. Tom Paine, for example, claimed that it was simply a matter of common sense that an island could not rule a continent. And Thomas Jefferson's lyrical rendering of the reasons for the entire revolutionary enterprise emphasized the self-evident character of the principles at stake." Second printing. Stock# 44,546x. Vg / dj vg.

Synopsis
